Christmas special episodes and series timers
« on: December 23, 2016, 10:48:21 AM »
Our IceTV series recordings for Grantchester and Little Lunch picked up their respective Christmas specials (‘Christmas Special’ and ‘The Nightmare Before Graduation’) and set recording timers for them on our Beyonwiz T4, but our series recordings for Doctor Who and Father Brown (‘Doctor Who: The Return Of Doctor Mysterio’ Mon 26 Dec 19:30, various ABC channels and ‘Father Brown: Christmas Special’ Sat 24 Dec 19:30, ABC & ABC HD) have not set recording timers.

In the past, Christmas specials like them have been picked up by the normal series recordings for the program. In fact, my series recording for Doctor Who has picked up (but not recorded, because they are repeats), two previous Doctor Who Christmas specials, ‘Last Christmas’ and ‘The Husbands Of River Song’.

Is there a reason why some Christmas specials are more "special" than others?

I just checked and neither the Doctor Who Christmas special nor the Father Brown one is marked as a series, so naturally they won't be picked up by the series recordings for the series of which those two programs apparently aren't part of.

Hey prl,
